There are 2 more areas,but these are not always considered as real principalites.According to tradition the first ruler, or Lord of Batulolong came from East-Timor: Kepanu Kani. This in 1928 born Raja is the younger brother of the last ruling raja of Batulolong with name Raja Lourens Karimalei, who was from 1947-1962 the 14th ruler of Batulolong.
He died in 1996.
Alor people are known as very sweet people. The rajas mostly began as coast-rajas/rulers, coming from other islands and trying to make cooperation with inland people.
On islands like Alor and Timor tradition remains in a healthy way in every day life.
